This was a Chinese Assisted Living Center geared towards elderly who could only speak in a Chinese delegate. Overall, the experience was pleasant. My grandmother spend five years here before she passed away. The staff was very friendly and there were many activities to get involved with.

My grandma stays here and I visit her twice a week. This facility is very nice, clean, and well-kept. The administrative staff and the nurses and caregivers are very accommodating and helpful. The food provided is decently good and they provide plentiful portions. For elderly people that are more active, there is space in the back yard area to take a stroll. The landscaping of this area is very nice with a fountain, flowers, and a small garden area in the corner. Additionally, they have many activities planned during the day for everyone to participate in. On special occasions they plan festivities for residents' families to attend with food and entertainment. Overall, I highly recommend this facility.

I'm not sure exactly which metrics by which to measure the quality of an assisted living facility so here is my best attempt.

My grandma was recently moved to this facility. Whenever I visit the staff seems friendly and open. Note that this is primarily an Asian (Chinese) facility. The food is decent but I could see it becoming monotonous. It's usually soft for obvious reason. They seem to try and have events for the residents to promote socializing and fight boredom including mahjong and field trips. There isn't much space for exercise however which is a negative. My grandma has always been enthusiastic about walking but there isn't much space there. There is a small courtyard where she can do "laps" but not much else. The facility keeps an early schedule with residents usually sleeping by 8pmish.

Overall, I think the quality of the facility is pretty good as far as assisted living facilities go (also considering this is the only one with which I have experience).

I visited this facility

As soon as your step in , you get a very homey feeling. The staff are friendly, helpful and most importantly speak Chinese. This centrally located community is a part of a big chain, but has the warmth of a local family run community. It is a pricey, but well worth the money

My grandmother lives at Aegis Gardens. We chose it for two reasons a) its a beautiful property b) the staff are wonderful and speak Chinese. Surprisingly this is the only place in the SF Bay area that specifically caters to an Asian community. The facilities are also spacious, clean, and conveniently located by the freeway and stores. All meals are prepared for, there is a beautiful garden out back, and they have daily activities and parties for the residents.

Definitely a great place to ease the move in transition - its upscale and high class! The only thing to note is that a majority of residents are not all too active or social.

Located close to shopping and medical centers, those who call Aegis Gardens home will feel enveloped in the Asian culture through the interiors, landscaping and excellent Asian cuisine.

When the Fremont community opened in November, 2001, Aegis was heralded as one of the first companies to provide assisted living with an authentic Asian experience for its residents. An all-Chinese advisory board helped identify what would be important to a community of Asian seniors, and what cultural significances the project would need to address.
